Although the decay heat from fuel debris drives the coolant boiling in fast reactor accident conditions, the present experiments were conducted by employing depressurization boiling of water to simulate axially increasing void distribution in a debris bed instead of conventional heating or gas injection from the debris bottom. Good agreements on self-leveling occurrence were obtained between model predictions and experimental results. Extrapolation of the present model was also discussed against reactor conditions.
